Are any of you guys familiar with Gleason Spiral Bevel Gear Generators? A friend has a few really nice smaller ones w/tooling.

Got another fixer upper. Older model Lodge and Shipley 16". A friend needed some Ford Model A fenders patched up and offered me the lathe as payment. It needs a few handles repaired and the taper attachment is missing a rod/clamp.

And NO, I did not put the chain there. But I probably would have.

I would like to build a sheet metal roller to roll curved metal flat and flat metal curved. Up to 1/4" thick and about 5' wide. It could also roll round stock in a circle. Any ideas?

Here's a recent picture of my trailer queen from post #27. She still needs a motor set up and some handles fixed.

^^ Heins sounds like you need to copy a good size slip roll.

Do any of you guys have any info on "QUICKWORK" sheet metal working machinery? They made bead rollers, rotary shears, power hammers etc. I'm interested in info on their "Universal Machine".

Thanks
